Why do I like that?
What's wrong with me?
Probably because it’s really well done — maybe not everyone’s preferred look/taste, but it’s a look that requires an amazing amount of skill and work, so if it’s your taste, enjoy it! Nothing wrong with appreciating a very carefully done cut/color job!
yeah, I could never pull it off, but that dude actually looks pretty cool with that, and the skill to execute that must be insane
Exactly! My sister is a cosmetologist and JUST to get anyone’s hair that shade of platinum requires an incredible amount of skill, time, and knowledge of your products and how they work with each other, etc. It’s a work of art even if we don’t see it and think “oooh, pretty!”
Exactly! I work at a high end barber shop...I’m not a barber, but I know the kind of skill and damn near magic that it takes to accomplish something like that. It’s just incredible.
I honestly have no idea how they did it with one session of bleach and no toning from such dark hair. Though they probably just edited that part out cause it's not as cool ~~even though I could spends hours watching bleaching videos. I need help.~~
Do you watch Brad Mondo? He’s a hairdresser on YouTube...does a lot of reactions to home bleach/color jobs, among other fantastic videos. Check him out if you haven’t already! So funny and so compassionate — even when he HATES a look, he’ll always find something nice to say, and I love that!
Haha of course I have. I've spent too much time watching his videos, they're amazing. I also used his guide to bleach and colour my own hair and it's not too shabby if I do say so myself.
Agreed, I think he looked best before they started shaving the sides but the end result is still amazing.
Also he gives me Rhett McLaughlin vibes. Very handsome.
Are you a very carefully done cut/color job? Cuz I appreciate you 😉
That was slick...and also very kind!
That is sharp *as fuck*, that’s why you like it!
I know, right?
Yeahhh I like the white hair..... uh ohhhhh I think I’ll leave
It was fine until the designs and blue highlights. It’s going to grow out like absolute shite.
True, but for the day it's absolute nails. I think I like it because I've seen so many like that end up looking awful, but that was just perfect, like a computer game or comic book character.
My guess would be it wasn’t something that was kept for very long. Or he got it touched up weekly...which a lot of men do.
The vast majority of men don’t get weekly touch ups. I used to get a touch up at 3 weeks and a cut at 6 and my hair basically never looked like it grew, but his roots are gonna show in under a weeks considering he went from black to white on color.
Then he would have a sweet root shadow which will make the platinum pop even more
Nah I’m with you the guy wore it well so I can’t hate. I’d never get my haircut like that tho.
I dig it too!
There's no shame in enjoying great, skilled work.
It's okay, I was thinking it was pretty hot too lol confused but hey there it is.
I like it, too.
I like it to it’s really done
Lay off the LSD, bro.
You're not my supervisor ;)
*Malory Archer has entered the chat*
Haha, autism! That's SO funny dude! Holy shit, I cannot believe the comedic creativity! God he is so fucking hilarious guys
His beard needs to be shorter...much shorter. But like, that’s a gorgeous man. With his natural hair/beard color.
And can I just say, whoever did that bleach and cut is amazing. Not because I love it, but because IT TAKES SO MUCH SKILL to get hair that color. I work at a high end barber shop. This was insane.
How the hell did he manage to get to platinum in one shot ?
I think the video omits the toner step. Bleach alone makes hair yellow. Toner makes it platinum (or whatever color you're going for). Source: am platinum blonde. Also, I think his color is gorgeous.
Yeah this sub is fuck my shit up but the color he achieved is like really fucking good for being done in a day lol
yeah but doesn't there need to be at least two bleachings to get it light enough to tone it to white/silver. especially when starting with hair that dark.
I'm not sure but they definitely over simplified the process for the video. I'm sure this took hours! Gotta cut somewhere I suppose.
It depends on the level you started at and how well the hair takes lightener. For me, a dark brunette, it takes at least 3 goes with bleach to get it that light. Some people only need 1.
My daughter actually had this problem recently. She was going for a blue balayage. The bleach took too good on the first shot so some strands wound up greenish. She had dark brown hair.
If you look at the cut from 18 seconds in, the hair is white with brown tint (washing the bleaching solution off), then the next shot is it more white (dry combing), I think it's safe to assume they did at least 2 bleachings to get it that light.
It all depends on the hair and bleach. Some hair is especially receptive to bleach and some hair will never go white no matter what you do.
The variety in hair “personalities” can be pretty wild.
Depends on the porosity of the hair and there was blonde underneath the brown. I have very fine dark hair and 1 bleach is enough
Yeah I achieved white hair for awhile, even though my natural hair is like a level 7 or 8 depending on what chart you use.
The damage and upkeep and straight up magic it takes to prevent bending and getting that even color is unreal.
I think the blue is the toner
Sorry you're being downvoted, the blue stuff is the bleach. Purple is used to to neutralize yellow tones. I kind of hate that I know this, idk why.
Thanks. I knew it included bleach, but I thought it might have the toner mixed in, even if it's just for the video
I was wondering that myself... doesn’t it take a lot more than that to strip color out ?
Absolutely, they definitely skipped a few steps
My girl is a hair stylist, I showed her and said “can you do this to my hair” she just laughed at me and said “ oh honey, it’s not quite that simple”
Oh yeah, i had platinum blonde for just under a year, and I never even got that bright white. Wish I could but damn, I gotta figure out what product they be using
His hair was virgin - if he’d had color on it there’s no way it would go platinum in one sitting.
My hair was virgin some years ago when I wanted it dyed blue. It took 2 bleachings to get my hair light enough so that the blue didn't turn green.
It all depends on your natural level, texture and the products used. Example, I’m a level 4/5 (medium brown) and can be bleached to platinum with 30v in about 25min. Everyone is different. (I’m a hairstylist.)
Yep - they skipped over the orange/yellow phases haha
My thoughts exactly - my hair is dark brown, nearly black like his - took three sessions to get it yellow, then a toner to get it to this color.
They didn’t show the toning process but his hair was virgin and I’m sure they used 30v (at least)
That’s what I was thinking. Black hair to icy white, how in the fuck?!
We call this r/atbge
Wish he would’ve done the eyebrows. That’s the only part that looks off.
Sorry, but you have some typos. You misspelled longer.
>His beard needs to be longer...much longer.
What makes a barber shop 'high end'?
Edit: downvoted for asking a simple question. I guess that's reddit for ya
Bro take this video down to Cliff opposite the bodega, ask him to do this to you for $23, and come back with the results.
You're paying for the expertise of the person doing the cut or dye. It's 100% worth it to me to go to a nice salon to get dye done so it doesn't come out a splotchy mess. Getting a platinum like this takes skill.
A high end barber shop has better skilled barbers than a low end barber shop. They can probably cut more types of hair and in better ways. Anyone can cut hair, but it takes skill to make a person look good.
I don’t know why you got downvoted 🙄 people....
But everyone more or less summed it up. The shop I work at has very skilled barbers and cosmetologists. They take extreme care with what they’re doing, and they each specialize in something a little different. I know exactly who will do the best straight razor shave...who can do the best fades, the best longer cuts, etc. They’re all amazing, but I will schedule certain things with certain people if I can. But you also pay for what you get. We’re not cheap...there’s definitely more expensive places out there. But you get quality. It’s also beyond just a hair cut. There’s an option for our cosmetologists to do scalp massages, paraffin had dips, hand and foot grooming. It’s pretty nice.
Dont care, still looks stupid
Why is this here? Isnt this one of those things where the barber is showing off their technical skills for a competition?
You described half of this sub. The other half is old hairstyles. Then theres 3-4 pictures of actual fuckups that get reposted every week.
at least 25% is punk rock girl cuts that are perfectly normal in college towns
How can you tell it’s a competition?
Because in less than 24 hours that beard will look terrible because of uneven growth. You do something like this to photograph or as a demonstration of skill, not for daily living.
Because it looks shit
It actually looks kinda cool.
Yeah no shit it does, doesn’t take away from the technical side of it.
Lol I love the mindset….so people agree this isn’t bad per-say because it’s for a competition but when someone says it looks like shit, DOWNVOTES! It absolutely does look fucking ridiculous. Technically, it’s amazing….but this looks like a fucking cosplayer. Would look insanely dumb in real life.
I wanted a haircut that looks almost exactly like this for about 5 years of my life. I unironically love this look.
He is gorgeous and getting your hair that color is TOUGH. The cut isn't my cup of tea but it clearly took skill.
At worst this is ATBGE but it definitely isn't fucked.
I feel like ATBGE really only suits stuff if there's something fundamentally wrong with the premise. This is definitely a style for a specific taste but that doesn't make it "wrong" the way I expect from ATBGE.
Either way, *definitely* doesn't suite this sub - that stylist definitely knows what they're doing.
yeah I think taste is subjective, but either way the technical aspect of this was done by someone with skill
What's ATBGE mean?
Awful Taste But Great Execution. There's a whole subreddit that's definitely worth checking out.
It's an amazing subreddit, and more wholesome than a lot of "making fun of stuff" subreddits.
Yeah I always like that one, it's just saying "look I wouldn't have this, but I can appreciate the effort someone put in to it."
I unsubscribed from a bunch of subreddits because any subreddit about hating/mocking something is inevitably super toxic.
Awful Taste But Good Execution
Awful taste but great execution
Wouldn't this also be exceptionally onerous to maintain? I feel like these kinds of cuts would only look this good for like one day.
Very much so! Not just the cut either--keeping hair that color is a serious commitment. Platinum can turn brassy in just a few days.
This isn’t that guy’s haircut. It’s the hardresser/barber showing skill and technique on a model.
The model will likely get another more normal haircut after the video and pictures.
I can't even be bothered to know if the hair is fucked up...That is one beautiful man.
This is some futuristic, Hunger Games type shit. I dig it tbh.
Looks like a borderlands character
This sub has become “anything thats not a basic $15 cut”
My guy said give me the cyberpunk geralt of rivia
Imagine styling every morning and shaving.
This doesn't really fit this sub imo... this belongs to r/ATBGE
I agree, the hair was done well, just not for me.
Def wrong sub. This looks amazing
Looked pretty fucking good until he started doing the adidas stripes on the sides. The finished product looks great either way. I couldn't pull it off but this guy does, 10/10 great job on the barber's part.
This really doesn't belong on this sub
I wanna look like the fancy KFC guy but even more fancier.
Down vote this shit yo. This barber has some serious skills! This shouldnt be posted here.
Yeah exactly! Might not be everyone's cup of tea, but you have to appreciate the barber's skills.
Um. This is cool.
The dude looks BADASS wym
He looks like he would put 100 people in a large ring and make them kill eacother to survive.
That shade of silver is stunning
What's fucked up about this? Looks bad as hell. I actually love it.
Uhm...This is fresh as fuck!
Uh. I like this. I wouldn't consider this to be on this sub really.
He looks like an electric themed super villain
This shit slaps tbh
Honestly I like it. The blue looks kind of dumb but the rest is pretty fun.
Honestly, kinda cool ngl
...and didn’t touch the eyebrows?
Didn't colored the eyebrow. Disappointed
Bro getting ready for Tekken 9
I dont think this fits the sub
It’s not my personal taste, but as someone who has been doing hair for years, I’m extremes impressed with the talent.
Especially the beard. I was sure that shit was going to be a mottled chunk of yellow and brown and blonde with chemical burns.
Plus the razor work was seriously impressed.
Zeus? Looks more like Jack Frost to me
I LOVE it.
Man that looking fooken dope
I don’t know about the haircut but he is smoking hot.
Doesn’t even look that bad
Fuck boy Zeus
So just regular Zeus? That guy was the OG fuck boi.
Nah this is gas
That’s a work of art!
This is good, it doesn't belong in this sub. Lil Nas X's Holiday vibes.
Plus, as others have pointed out, he didn't walk into a barbers asking for this. It'll either be a photoshoot for the model or the hairdresser.
not your taste doesn't mean he fucked his hair up.
Nah OP this doesn’t fit here. That looks dope
Dude is talented… but like why
I honestly think that looks cool af
He looks like toothpaste
The video editing is the only upsetting thing here.
Geralt of Compton
I was on board until he gave him a total fuckboy haircut
I want to look 45 years older than I actually am. Money is no concern.
That's so extra lol
Looks cool, but how anyone doesnt feel foolish walking around like that is beyond me
Now he just needs some True Religion jeans and an Affliction t-shirt.
God damn' having that caustic stank paste just sitting on your face around your mouth and nose.
I am more interested in seeing this guy grow that shit out. Especially his beard
Fuck it, I like it. The video has some interesting editing choices but I'd be willing to rock that on me bonce.
Yes. Please. By all means, fuck my shit up. 😘
That was actually done really well. Maybe not everyone’s style but it’s wasn’t done “shitty”
Please justfuckmyshitup too! I want to look like a god aswell
Dude whatever, this looks rad af.
An edgy Santa .
It might not be to everyone's taste but the skill involved in this is amazing. It's so hard to get dark hair to that beautiful platinum colour and make it look amazing.
I like this.
This is not FMSU material, man looks dapper AF being truthful
Duuude,! I want that hairdo too
Age me 30 years fam
He’s like a male Elsa
Yeah, I'd rock that like a hurricane. Unfortunately, my hairline won't allow it.
I mean, it's cool, but in a week it'll look like shit.
Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should
Luckily he can cut it all off
this looks really cool.
Fantastic execution and skill!
/r/ATBGE maybe, but not here.
That’s it. Leaving the sub.
I dig it.
It Looks cool but i think it's a bit to much.
Buddy fuckin rocks this. This is a pretty cool haircut. I wish I wasnt a bald piece of shit.
It might be cause he's really hot, but I 100% fuck with this
From 25 to 55. Great work /s
looks sick imo
I dunno I think it looks pretty sick lol. Would be a cool movie character.
I'm seriously obsessed with this. I kind of love it
This mans eyes said “please help me” at one shot in this vid 😂
How is this messed up?
He looks gorgeous!
I don't know why this is on this sub lol
Not sure why he'd want to look 35 years older, but not gonna lie - he's pulling that shit off
If they had the restraint to stop a few fades earlier this would have been so damn cool.
Downvoted because this is actually really good.
That shit is jumpin'
He looks good!
Yeah that looks dumb as fuck.
Ngl I think it looks sick
You misspelled Douche
Went through your profile and it screams neckbeard incel so loudly that I just lost my fucking hearing brUh
No way, another submission that belongs in r/ATBGE ?? Well, I never!
Anyone know the song?
I won't deny that the barber has talent, but also, fuck him.
Now I'm confused, if someone does this, it'll stay for what, a day? Until he takes a shower, or will he go to the hair place every single day?
I don't understand why you spend copious amounts of money on something that's just gonna get ruined by a shower at the end of the day. Just get a normal ass haircut.
